Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #4 - Kid's Birthday Themed Party
I first cut the images: horse and layers and not the bandana & not the shadow, horseshoe and made the top of horseshoe red, and the phrase out of red gingham paper. Decided to add the bandana out of the same red gingham paper that phrase was cut out of. Decided to change the top of horseshoe to yellow so it would stand out more. Decided to give the bandana more sturdiness and since I figured I would use foam adhesives on it on the horse I added a red piece of the bandana to the back of the red gingham paper. I made a phrase out of red since there was no shadow for the phrase and this also gave the phrase out of red gingham more sturdiness like the bandana.
I had no idea that I would put the images on a stair step card let alone learn how to make a stair step card. Watched a video and after 2 tries I got the stair step card made. 1st try I had the 2 slits cut correct but did not have the scoring correct. Had one more piece of the HayStack paper like I used in my Down on the Farm scrapbook layout. Decided to use Denim looking paper as border on sides of Hay Stack of stair step card. This project was growing but I'm so happy with the way it turned out and I learned so much in the process.
Create a Critter Cricut cart page 59:
3" horse incl Layer 1-3 of which the bandana is Layer 3 and shadow,
4 1/2" accessory horseshoe &
2 1/2" phrase Howdy
Stair step card base 5 1/2" x 11" white cardstock
lay the paper with 11" as horizontal to make the slits
cut 2 slits 1" from each side going from 1" to 6 1/2" - used my new Fiskars trimmer that allows you to see the paper and lift up on the cutter so that you only cut the part you want to like in making slits which cannot be done with a regular trimmer that would cut from end to end
Used Martha Stewart score board to do the scoring:
1" from side from top of card to slit & from bottom slit to bottom of card
2" from side from top of card to slit & from bottom slit to bottom of card
5 1/2" between slit to slit
6 1/2" all the way from top to bottom
Base 5 1/2" x 11" white cardstock
Colorbok Hay Stacks
Sandylion Denim Paper
the Paper Studio Red Gingham
black, 3 shades of brown, red, yellow
black marker to color horse's: eyes, nostrils & mouth
foam adhesives to give 3D look to horse & horseshoe, mini pop dots to adhere the phrase to top
May add some natural color twine or rope to this.
